  • Crabfest chaos has to stop now

     There’s a lot of good people in the community commonly called East Williston and Saturday those people became victims when violence took over an event that has long roots in the community–Crabfest.

  • RFL is thankful for ‘you’

  • Ponderable

     The lawn mower is silent. There is no clanging of a hammer as it  beats against a machine, or nail, or tree. Palm fronds have fallen unceremoniously to the ground during the brisk March gusts and lay there yet as April comes into being with a promise of a hot summer.

  • Blood donations critical; may save your neighbor’s life

  • Sydney and beyond

    By Susan Howell

     No grass grew under my feet once I landed at Sydney International Airport. After almost 24 hours spent in travel, I was quickly whisked away at the airport by my son, where we boarded a train that took us over to Sydney Harbor, where we then transferred onto a ferry which would take us over to Manly Beach. Reality set in as the ferry cruised past the historic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge– “I’m in Australia.”

  • Farewell

    As this outstanding basketball teams season comes to an end, I too, am saying “So long.”  

    Over the last 7 1/2  years, I have had the distinct privilege to cover some of the most outstanding, well mannered young men and women participating in high school sports today. I am speaking of the young men and women in Williston, who are proud to be called Red Devils.

    From football to basketball, volleyball and softball, baseball, and the cheerleaders.  And I certainly won't forget the annual Award Banquets I have covered.
